Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, supermodel extraordinaire and Victoria's Secret Angel, is spilling secrets about the diet that's had her feeling like her best-ever self, according to E! Online. It all starts with London-based naturopathic doctor Nigma Talib, who just launched a new book, Younger Skin Starts in the Gut, and created the plan Huntington-Whiteley has been following.
So what has her feeling so good? A diet with no dairy, gluten, sugar, or alcohol. So, basically, giving up all the fun things. All hopes of ever looking like a supermodel = gone.
"It's been really tough, it is, there's no doubt in my mind that once you start to see and feel results, it's really been transformative for me," Huntington-Whiteley told E!. "I can feel it in my skin, I can feel it in my body, I feel lean right now, and I feel strong and I feel energized." (P.S. Here's What Might Actually Happen If You Give Up Dairy.)
She loves it so much, she even got her fiancee, Jason Statham, hooked on the plan. But she does admit to missing some of her favorite things—think wine, cheese, and croissants. (See, guys, she is human! She must just work them off in the gym.)
If you're thinking about trying this supermodel diet for yourself, there's some good news—once you're seeing results on the plan, Talib recommends scaling things back to an 80/20 diet plan, which means eating healthfully 80 percent of the time and allowing yourself to indulge for 20 percent of the time. Jillian Michaels is an advocate of the same type of plan, as is Mike Fenster, M.D., cardiologist, professional chef, and author ofThe Fallacy of the Calorie.
"There are special occasions, vacations, and life moments that call for a willingness to throw caution, and nutritional guidelines, to the wind," Fenster has told Shape.
So you can totally go ahead and indulge on some French fries (after all, HW says she does). Just make sure those "special occasions" don't happen every night when you're binge-watching Scandal, or the results won't last long.
